Tonight in Phoenix, more than 650 youth will seek shelter on the streets. Tomorrow night will look exactly the same unless something changes.

TumbleTees is a youth-in-business social enterprise with a distinctive vision: to provide quality screen printing services to the community while giving homeless youth leadership skills and gainful employment. Founded on the belief that the painful experience of homelessness can be transformed into profound leadership capacity, TumbleTees prepares youth for lifelong success and self-sufficiency.

Once a grassroots screen printing design space, TumbleTees now operates a full-scale commercial storefront design and production center specializing in high volume apparel customization. Yet TumbleTees is much more than a screen printing shop; it is an opportunity for youth to escape the traumas of abuse, exploitation and fear that accompany life on the streets. It’s a safe space for them to explore their creative abilities and receive mentorship in the context of caring relationships.

But most importantly, it is a place where they are promised an opportunity to receive the power, and the paycheck, to stay off the streets.

100% of proceeds directly impact the fight against youth homelessness in our community.

Who We Are


Tumbleweed is Arizona’s champion for homeless and forgotten youth. Since the opening of its first shelter for teenage runaways in 1975, Tumbleweed now provides a continuum of programs touching the lives of nearly 2,500 vulnerable young people each year. Tumbleweed’s services meet the complex and individualized needs of these youth, through emergency support during individual/family crises, solutions to housing instability and homelessness, and opportunities to prepare for lifelong success.

TumbleTees exists as Tumbleweed’s youth-in-business social enterprise, providing quality screen printing services to the community while training and employing homeless youth. Through its career readiness model, TumbleTees helps equip these youth with self-sufficiency and employability skills to escape homelessness and stay off the streets forever.
